Bill Belleville at Rollins

Peace of Blue


Join award-winning nature writer Bill Belleville as he shows compelling images and reads excerpts from his latest book, “The Peace of Blue: Water Journeys”— a collection of first-person stories that take place near, atop, or under water.

According to Carl Hiaasen, Bill Belleville “writes gorgeously and straight from the heart.” In The Peace of Blue”, the author guides you on a lyrical journey to natural places in Florida and the Caribbean that have been shaped by water in some way. He poetically affirms the vitality of this most essential substance in our lives by showing the many ways in which water-driven landscapes nurture plants, wildlife—and the human spirit.
